Publisher's Description

Discover the art of mindfulness through words, phrases, haikus, and photographs that reflect the stillness and meditative nature of Japanese culture.

From the wistful poetry of mono-no-aware, a word that asks us to recognize the bittersweet transience of all things, to the quiet harmony of wa, which knits together all of society's structures, Ikigai and Other Japanese Words to Live By is an introduction to the intricacies and value of Japanese phrases and concepts.

This book inspires you to incorporate these into your own lifestyle and adopt a more mindful attitude towards stress, seeking meaning beyond materialism. In addition to over 40 Japanese words, Ikigai features musings on places of beauty, community, and time and nature in Japanese thought. Imperfect beauty and reflection are encouraged by way of compelling haikus and Michael Kenna's black-and-white photography.
